HYPEtools is an R add-on package, providing a continuously growing set of functions to support and simplify processing files and analyzing results of the HYPE model. It is available from the HYPEtools GitHUB pages as source or compiled package. For installation instructions, see the this page. (Note: Currently, the HYPEtools R package requires a 64 bit R installation).
The input data files needed for a HYPE application can be created in many ways. In our work at SMHI, we often create these files by using the GIS-based tool from SMHI called WHIST.
